Dance to the music

A very happy New Year to you all and a warm welcome to my first post of 2013! Hope you all enjoyed some great celebrations and feel ready for new adventures!

I am sharing another journal page today, - a mixed media collage on paper this time. The Prima mixed emdia album I am using has different substrates for each page, and I am really enjoying experimenting with different media and techniques. For this page I have used Dylusions Sprays, Distress Stains, Collage papers and various stamps.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
